DAVIE, Fla. http://www.chiefsteamprostore.com/Youth-Steven-Nelson-Elite-Jersey/ . -- Even though tackle Bryant McKinnie lost his starting job two weeks ago, the Miami Dolphins figure he can upgrade their leaky line. Miami acquired McKinnie on Monday from the Baltimore Ravens for a conditional late-round draft pick. The 34-year-old McKinnie will likely compete for playing time with right tackle Tyson Clabo, who allowed two fourth-quarter sacks in Miamis loss Sunday to Buffalo and has given up seven sacks this season. McKinnie, who is listed at 6-foot-8 and 352 pounds but might be bigger, started all four post-season games a year ago at left tackle for the Super Bowl champion Ravens. He also started the first five games this season, then he was benched in favour of Eugene Monroe and has since been inactive for the first time in his career. "I appreciate my time in Baltimore & winning a ring along the way," McKinnie tweeted. "Now time to move on." Coincidentally, McKinnies final game for the Ravens came when they beat Miami. "Hes a really good player," said Dolphins defensive end Olivier Vernon, who butted heads with McKinnie. "Hes a big guy. Thats a lot of man right there. He held his point really good against us when we played them, so itll be a great addition to the team." The Dolphins (3-3) havent won in a month. In the past three games, theyve allowed 12 sacks and committed seven turnovers -- all by harried quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The teams downward spiral threatens to gain momentum with the next two games against division leaders New England and Cincinnati. "Were realistic in where were at," receiver Brian Hartline said. "We understand the drop-off weve had. But were still alive; were not a dead team." Poor pass protection for Tannehill has put playoff prospects in jeopardy, however. He leads the NFL with 26 sacks, and his fumble when sacked by Mario Williams in the closing minutes led to a Bills field goal that gave them a 23-21 victory. Williams used a power rush on the play to beat Clabo, who took the blame. The timing of the deal hints at the Dolphins desperation for pass-blocking help. They havent swung an in-season trade since Sept. 29, 2009, when they acquired quarterback Tyler Thigpen from Kansas City for a fifth-round draft pick. Coach Joe Philbin resisted any temptation to shake up the offensive line when the team had a bye before the Buffalo loss. His day-after-the-game media session Monday took place before news of the trade surfaced. "Its a good move for us, good move for Bryant," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "He is a proven and experienced player who will be a great addition to the offensive line," Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said in a statement. To make room on the roster for McKinnie, Miami waived linebacker Josh Kaddu. McKinnie played for the Vikings in 2002-10 and made the Pro Bowl in 2009. Last season, he came off the bench for the Ravens during the regular season, then was a key figure in their run to the Super Bowl title. But he missed the first day of training camp this summer for being overweight and struggled thereafter. The trade means a homecoming of sorts for McKinnie, who won the Outland Trophy with the 2001 national champion Miami Hurricanes. Vernon also played for the Hurricanes, but said he didnt remember McKinnie as a collegian. "Nah," Vernon said. "That was when I was a little kid, man." http://www.chiefsteamprostore.com/Youth-Frank-Zombo-Elite-Jersey/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.chiefsteamprostore.com/Youth-Chase-Daniel-Elite-Jersey/ .

A Murray spokesman declined comment to KING 5, but Daly confirmed to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun he was there to get an update on a new arena.  NHL spokesman Frank Brown also added the following to LeBrun: "Commissioner Bettman met with the Mayor while on the West Coast for playoff games. The purpose of the meeting was solely to obtain a status report on the new arena."

In April, Bettman said the proposed basketball and hockey arena in Seattles Sodo neighborhood needs to get much further along before the league considers any expansion.

According to KING 5, city leaders and Hansen have indicated they are currently not willing to renegotiate the deal to allow an NHL team to prompt construction.  Sources have also told KING 5 that Constantine has privately been meeting with potential hockey investors over the last several months and that three different groups have expressed interest in owning an NHL franchise in Seattle. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
